Make a ... and do it yourself


MAKE A is a veritable manifesto that aims to democratise furniture manufacturing without going through distributors and to empower consumers to become co-designers.

The project gives the Maillon company (and, eventually, everyone) direct access to the construction blueprints for a furniture series that can be built by anyone, using standard cuts and Computer Numerical Control technology.

The idea is that the theatre will be able to produce furniture as it wishes and needs while keeping the cost to a minimum.

MAKE A and 'Do It Yourself' want to challenge political, economic and social models. In the digital era, this project showcases the need to revisit singular, local thinking and production.
